Assistant Head Sommelier

Kerridge's Bar & Grill

Our heart, head and hands play a part in everything we do. By caring about the art of hospitality and perfecting every detail, we work together to uplift the lives of others. There is nothing quite like the satisfaction of providing an unrivalled service that is greatly admired.

Kerridge’s Bar & Grill was the first London restaurant by Tom Kerridge and the Hand & Flowers team.
